a curse to see
the world as itself
all sin, all despair
passing in and through
darkened thoughts
wakeful nights
solace seeking
finds more of the same
pushing further
toward destruction
visionary curse
humanity exposed
bringing disgust
and delight to point
a single exactitude
opening onto the condition
thoughts of Utopian bliss,
happiness vanish
smothered by surroundings
offering no repose
this is the life
an artist wins
the reward given poets
for open eyes
and sacrificed souls
